Eye Exam in Sugar Land TX at Texas State Optical
We invite you to come in for a routine eye exam with Dr. Robert Le, at Texas State Optical. Everyone, no matter how young or old, is advised by the American Optometric Association (AOA) to have a complete eye examination done regularly. We’re pleased to serve residents of the greater Sugar Land with this service.
AOA Recommendations for When to Schedule Complete Eye Exams:
Adults under age 40, who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, should have a full eye evaluation done every year. If no vision correction is needed, adults should come in for a comprehensive check-up on a regular basis, preferably every two to three years.
After 40 years of age, the incidence of many common eye diseases increases, and therefore it’s important to have an eye exam done annually. In addition to checking vision quality, Dr. Le will inspect your eyes for any early signs of conditions, such as cataracts, macular degeneration and presbyopia. Adults over 60 years of age are at a heightened risk of these diseases and may need even more frequent evaluations.
An initial eye exam is advised to be done at 6 months old, and follow-up should be scheduled for a more complete evaluation at 3 years of age. After this, it is very important to bring your child for a total eye examination before the beginning of elementary school.
School-aged children should continue with annual check-ups, whether or not they wear eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, some kids who require vision correction may be instructed by their eye doctor to come in more than once a year.
Visual difficulties are extremely common with young children, and unfortunately they can also cause problems with classroom learning. Therefore it’s important not to fall behind with your child’s eye checks.
When Risk Factors for Eye Conditions are Present:
With adults, there are certain physical conditions and diseases that indicate a need for more frequent eye exams. These risk factors include diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders.
There are a number of specific risk factors that need to be considered when it comes to evaluating children. If your child has any of the following risks, please call our office for a consultation with Dr. Le:
- A past eye injury
- Family history or genetic tendency for eye disease
- Developmental delays, especially with learning, coordination and reading
- Crossed eyes
- Physical disease or ailments
- Pre-term birth
What happens at a comprehensive eye exam?
At TSO Sugar Land, Dr. Robert Le will use a number of different tests and procedures in order to check your vision and the health of your eyes. You will be asked to read basic letter and number charts, held at various distances from your eyes, to verify your prescription. Eyes will also be assessed for their strength at teaming, to make sure both eyes are working together. To assess the health of your inner ocular tissues, we will look into your eyes with a super-powered lens. All of equipment is state-of-the-art, so you can rest assured that your diagnoses will be highly accurate.
